Save the Date-The Big T'Do- Saturday, October 21st, 2023-6:00pm
Being a student is hard enough without social media and a pandemic to make it more stressful. In an effort to teach elementary students how to cope with both life and what is occurring in the world today, NGHS students created children's books. The high school students took several books focused on social conscience and worked together to created a children's version. These books highlighted social awareness and how to handle life situations. The books centered on looking different, fitting in, making friends, feelings of being left out , sadness etc.
The NGHS students and teachers found themselves with a wonderfully written and illustrated book but lacked the funding to print copies for the media centers in the elementary schools.
Meanwhile, the NGSF had available funds due to the 2020 pandemic. The board of directors decided to put this money to use. After coming together with the students and teachers, the project came to fruition and the books are in all North Gwinnett Elementary School media centers.
